Specialties

Dr. Syndee J Givre has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Not my favorite

Unfortunately there aren't many doctors like her in the area so you have no choice but to see her. She really just made me feel like my disease was my fault. I recently moved and have been seeing a new neuro-op who has been so much better! He listens, explains, and really seems to care about me as an individual patient.

Don't take your children to this provider.

Dr Givre's credentials are not for Pediatric Neuro-Ophthalmology. She is board certified in Ophthalmology, but not Neurology, and she has NO BUSINESS WORKING WITH CHILDREN or ADOLESCENTS. She has no bedside manner; very detached; very condescending. She does like to toot her own horn. She interrupted my daughter, my husband, and myself, and treated us as if we were idiots. She told my daughter in a very punitive and negative manner basically that her disease was her own fault. We were all shocked and amazed at her unprofessionalism and uncompassionate demeanor. We will NOT return to see her, even if we have to drive out of town. I am so disappointed in the "Physician". She doesn't deserve the title, regardless of her education, which is impressive. Too bad they didn't teach her any interpersonal communication skills and certainly no compassion.
